in our economy. >> joining me today, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former white house press secretary and founding partner off-almost said founding father -- founding father and partner of inside agency robert gibbs, congressional reporter for buzz feed and political reporter and white house correspondent at the "huffington post" sam stein. we talked a lot about the pizza versus the pizza box. after the gop autopsy, the republican conviction they didn't actually need to change the product they were selling, they just needed to change the marketing. it's unbelievable me, the whole 47% thing clearly has not made a dent. nowhere do you see that in a more pronounced fashion than republican talking points on unemployment. >> largely, if you ask most members of the gop, 47% to them wasn't a gaffe, it's a belief. i heard it in debates i had with people all of last year before the tape was uncovered. i do think, look, this is one of those things that the republicans will either learn this the easy way or the hard way. i remember watching these debates about unemployment insura

have a moral obligation to pay more than the wage. father jonathan morris is here to weigh in on that. $15 an hour, tax the rich, you must have health insurance or else. here is my take on the command economy. that's what it is. the left quarterbacked by president obama is trying to command the return of prosperity, command fairness, with an of a magic wand and command the economy to obey the white house. look at the $15 an hour movement. they want to legislate wages. it's not what you bring to the wage table, it's what politicians decree you should be paying, that's a command. look at the tax the rich idea. and that's an attempt to command income equality. wave that wand, make them pay, even more, and they tell you we will be all more equal. really? and how has that been going for the las five years. and then obamacare, perhaps the new motherload of the command economy, you shall have health insurance. you will give us your personal information, and stop whining if we lose it. you had enough of this yet? you see, it doesn't work. command economies do not produce widespread prosperity
'm joined by jonathan capehart, and john rosen that will, founder of stop handgun violence. i'll start with you, jonathan capehart. before we discuss the situation, i want the to ask about a joint statement today made by the family of newtown's victims. after thanking people for their kindness and thoughts at this time, they suggested the best way to help on saturday would be to perform an act of charity. i think that's something many people can relate to. and yet there are so many who think this is a time to also think about other collective action, including policy change. >> yes. well, you can understand, if you've met any of the families, the newtown families, you can understand, you know that the pain from a year ago is still very much -- very much present, very much on the surface. and so their desire, one for privacy, and two, for acts of kindness or charity, are understandable. but we also have to understand that there are people out there who have been fighting for gun violence reduction, changes in gun policies that would make it possible for there to be, you know, more safet

of jonathan sallow to held that task force is really -- >> who's also going to be the new general counsel at the fcc, the fellow that you just mentioned. >> guest: well, and i will tell you i just have great respect for phil revere who has led three bureaus at the fcc. he was the architect in the 1970s of some of the original sort of computer i and computer ii requirements that were aimed at introducing competition into the industry. i think that tom wheeler himself is one who has led industries that have been seeking to expand and to deploy and to invest. he has a very keen appreciation for those things that limit investment. and there's nothing that limits investment more than lack of certainty and predictability. so where there's a regulatory overhang that creates uncertainty and unpredictability, that limits investment. so i'm very, i'm very optimistic that we're going to see a commission that's going to focus on objectives and goals, investment, deployment and not focus so much on the traditional regulatory means that's been kind of the hallmark of the fcc. >> host: you're watching "

and potentially quite a power struggle. jonathan hunt is with us on the news deck. i was reading about this. what struck me was how much they were saying about very private and personal matters, something i've never seen then north koreans do. >> this was a very public firing. there have been plenty of what communist party watchers like to call purges, incidents of officials being thrown out in the past, but none as public or humiliating as this one. look at these photographs published on state tv. they show the uncle literally thrown out of a communist party meeting, and those photographs came along with a long statement read on behalf of the government, by state television, reporters, the statement said, in part, that jung song had been kicked out because, quote, he had improper relations with several women and was wined and dined in back rooms of luxury restaurants, ideologically sick and eyesle. he used funds and squandered foreign currency. what is not known is how kim jong-un has decided to do with his uncle. is he just removed and going to live a quiet, private, and hopefully peaceful life
the police are overreaching. jonathan sill says for this case to progress it has to be the boys knew the person was drunk and that they knew the accident would happen. so there's a standard of proof that is very, very high. it would be very difficult for the state to say one of the boys' conduct actually caused the accident. other thing you're a parent, i thought about, how much responsibility is on the shoulder of the parent who some people if they want to be cynical would say why didn't you teach your kid not to overindulge and underage drink, if we're going to go that route of who's responsible. >> i'm not saying it's an easy case but i don't agree with the analogies the way they were presented. i won't say it's an individual with a gun in his hand. to the extent this driver got out and leaves her the keys, he's handing the gun or it's someone who's intoxicated and now going for a swim in the ocean and you're giving them the bathing suit. you're facilitating. the prosecution is saying you're facilitating the process that puts them on this deadly sbiral. i don't know they'll be suc
